Reprographics | Gladstone's Library

Reprographics and Research Services 

A self-service photocopier can be found in Library Services. This takes cash and users should ensure they have sufficient change.

However, Gladstone’s Library discourages photocopying of any collection items on preservation grounds. Photocopying of collection items older than 1950 is not permitted under any circumstances. Upon payment of a small fee, users can photograph material for their own use. A self-service photography form must be completed, and payment made at Reception.

Gladstone’s Library will supply medium-quality JPEG for copyright-exempt use. Please complete the reprographics form and return it to the Enquiry Desk or to arrange payment.

We will only supply high-quality images for reproduction upon completion of a licencing application. Gladstone’s Library’s collections should be considered to be under copyright until rights clearance searches prove otherwise. Please submit all licencing enquiries to

Reprographic queries might incur a research fee, depending on the time that it will take staff to complete the request. Payment for all requests must be made in full before any material will be sent.

Gladstone’s Library welcomes enquiries concerning the collection: please use our Research Enquiry Form to send us your query. We aim to respond to initial enquiries within 3 working days, and for this there is no charge. However, if your enquiry is very detailed and likely to take more than 30 minutes to answer, a research fee is applicable. Should you decide to proceed, this is charged at £15 per hour or part thereof for enquiries of over 30 minutes, up to a maximum of 3 hours. We regret that Gladstone’s Library is not able to undertake research projects on behalf of users, and recommend that you engage the services of a professional researcher, if you are not able to visit the Library in person.
